Colin Farrell, Ben Stiller, Captain Kirk, Bono

Who boldly goes where few stars have gone before, meets with leaders of alien nations, embarks on missions of peace and justice?

If you said Bono, you are right, my friend. This post's for you. (Quick--Edge's real name?)

Somehow, I missed U2 through the 80s and 90s. Yeah, I'd heard of them, heard some of their songs, but I'm the kind of person who generally likes silence. I like time to think.

A couple years ago, Val Kilmer was hosting a rerun of Saturday Night Live and U2 were the musical guests. I was blown away.

Here are some of my favorite U2 moments:

Colin Farrell as Bono on Saturday Night Live.

Ben Stiller as Captain Kirk and Bono.

Bono as Bono at the Grammys, singing one of my favorite U2 songs, "Beautiful Day."

Edge's real name? Look in the comments section!

Edge's real name is David Howell Evans.

But do you know Captain James T. Kirk's middle name?

NA,

I know you're teasing me now! It's Bono! Time's 2006 Person of the Year, and 2005 Nobel Peace Prize Nominee.
